Not getting email notifications

Postby tanstaafl » Thu Aug 15, 2013 5:01 am

Not sure where to post this...

I'm not getting email notifications of replies to threads that I'm watching.

When I go to 'User Control Panel' > 'Manage Subscriptions', it says I'm not subscribed to anything, but that I'm 'watching' two threads (one that I replied to and one that I started).

I also have 'User Control Panel' > 'Board preferences' > 'Notify me upon replies by default:' enabled...

Am I missing something?

Thanks

I have the same issue. I've never seen a subscription notification, but I get new version notifications at the same email address.

mjnelson99, I don't understand. I _DO_ get version notices, but I _DON'T_ get any notification of replies to threads that I subscribe to.

I get emails for the threads that I reply to - using the web interface
of course. I have never subscribed to threads without contributing so
do not know if that is an issue. Only use the web interface if posting
from work, using Usenet inter4face from home.
